Catalyst Cap Intro Events are sector focused, investor driven events that host hand-picked investment managers and investors that are introduced to each other with a view to become investment partners.
This Catalyst Cap Intro Event focuses only on the Emerging Markets alternative investing space.
Introductions are accomplished through private meetings which are arranged prior the events, in an investor driven fashion based on the merits of each investment manager and the requests made by the investors. If a manager has not enough interest, they may cancel their participation, with full refund of fees.
2013 was the year of liquidity events for Non-Traded REITs. $11 billion worth of liquidity events occurred in the first half of the year, compared to just $3.6 billion in the latter half of 2012. With another three liquidations pending, a further $8 billion is on the table*.
And with much of the shareholder capital received from these liquidations being reinvested into other Non-Traded REIT products, this dynamic industry is seeing its hard work into improving its offerings to investors pay dividends.
Opportunities continue to abound in this evolving market, but this sector is not without its challenges.
